Episode Number: 312
Episode Title: Slippity-Doo-Dah
Original Air Date: January 9, 1999


Gary's efforts to prevent a woman's fall on ice could snowball into a deadly bus crash; Gary baby-sits Henry.

Note 1: First episode with snazzy new opening which includes the three new additions to Early Edition, even though Patrick does not appear in this episode.

Note 2: This episode was "Dedicated to the memory of Anthony "Cheach" Gallachio, 1944-1999, He will be missed." Sources from the show state: "[Gallachio] was our generator operator who went in early the day of our return from the holiday hiatus and was shoveling the snow from the big blizzard storm -- and died of a massive heart attack." On behalf of Early Edition fans, earlydues extends heartfelt sympathies to the family and friends of Mr Gallachio.
